Australian Curriculum Science: A STEM approach – Year 6

Preview Book

Prepare your students for the roles of the future! Minds will be challenged and imaginations unleashed as students develop skills such as innovation, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving; and technical science skills such as questioning, observing, systematic experimentation, and analysis and interpretation of data.

Feel confident delivering a comprehensive and contemporary science program, and ease your way into STEM projects with Science: A STEM approach.

 

Each book in this fantastic new series features:
  • four units with four STEM projects, organised by sub-strand—Biological sciences, Chemical sciences, Earth and space sciences and Physical sciences
  • easy-to-follow lesson plan format, with term overview at the start of each unit
  • ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom
  • background information for the teacher
  • resource sheets, if required
  • assessment sheets provided for science knowledge
  • STEM project for the remainder of the term (2–4 weeks)

 

Each STEM project includes:
  • a design brief
  • STEM curriculum links
  • alternative project ideas
  • a group rubric
  • self-assessment
  • resource sheets, if required

 

Science Understanding

  • The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)
  • Changes to materials can be reversible or irreversible (ACSSU095)
  • Sudden geological changes and extreme weather events can affect the Earth’s surface (ACSSU096)
  • Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097)
 
Science as a Human Endeavour
  • Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions (ACSHE098)
  • Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE100)

 

Science Inquiry Skills
  • With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS232)
  • Identify, plan and apply the elements of scientific investigations to answer questions and solve problems using equipment and materials safely and identifying potential risks (ACSIS103)
  • Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS104)
  • Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS107)
  • Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS221)
  • Reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations (ACSIS108)
  • Communicate ideas, explanations and processes using scientific representations in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS110)
